Should I continue Blogging?

I have been thinking about time lately and wondering if I should continue to invest my time into this blog! There is lots to share, but at times I don't really know if I want my blog to be public. I am wondering if anyone reads my blog. Let me know so if I go private I can invite you to be a viewer!

My Hubby's 30th

I wanted to make Kurtis' 30th special and fun, so I thought of 3 places to take him throughout the weekend! I gave him a clue for each place and he had to try and guess where we were going!

The 1st Clue led us to The Moolah, a fun theater downtown where we sat on comfy leather couches!

Here we are in our 3D glasses getting ready to watch Alice in Wonderland

After the movie I took Kurtis to Ted Drewes! It is a famous custard place and very delicious!

Clue 2 brought us to Castlewood Park where we took a nice hike and enjoyed a great view of the Meramec River!

Clue 3 was all about seafood and one of the best places to go is McCormick and Schmick's!

My Mom did a special Birthday meal at her house!

We are both 30 and couldn't be happier!

The King of the day is ready to eat!

Homemade checkerboard cute and very yummy!

I love you and so very thankful for you!

Psalm 40:1-5

"I waited patiently for the Lord;
he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock and
gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear and
put their trust in the Lord.
Blessed is the man who
makes the Lord his trust,
who does not look to the proud,
to those who turn aside to false gods.
Many, O Lord my God,
are the wonders you have done.
The things you planned for us
no one can recount to you;
were I to speak and tell of them,
they would be too many to declare."

Our lives, our country, and our world are messy and unpredictable, but the truths of God are beautiful and everlasting. He loves us, He has paid our debt, and He has changed my life and made me whole. Thank you, Lord!

The BIG 30

Kurtis really pampered me on my 30th Birthday! The weekend before my Birthday he took me shopping to Anthropologie, my favorite store. I got to pick out a cute top for my Birthday night, but had no clue where or what we were doing. I also got some very fun new shoes!!! A few days before my 30th I got a beautiful bouquet of flowers from Kurtis and the note was so sweet and there was a P.S. included and it said to pack an overnight bag for Friday night. He knows I like surprises, but he also knows I am not a last minute packer! He got off early on Birthday and I was all ready to go. We ended up at this amazing Sushi Bistro which was delicious! I felt so celebrated and loved! We left dinner and had to drive a little bit, but arrived at a newer hotel which was very hip and cool. It was located in a charming shopping, dining, and entertainment district! The modern design and creative decor makes this hotel very unique. We had a wonderful evening together and I will never forget my 30th Birthday!

I love gerber daisies
